Product Description

Pastors often struggle with conflicting expectations. The most painful of these conflicts is between the expectations of their congregations and the needs of their families. They must, at the same moment, be available to parishioners and carve out private family time. Belton Joyner knows that often the best therapy for pastors caught in this dilemna is to laugh at it. WIth humorous illustrations and light-hearted straight talk, he helps pastors understand their own family dynamics, the role their families play in the life of the church, and how to be an effective minister of the gospel and a responsible spouse and parent--all at the same time.

A solid family life will help pastors focus and attentively minister to the needs of their congregation.

With humorous illustrations and light-hearted straight talk, he helps pastors understand their own family dynamics,  the role their families play in the life of the church, and how to be an effective minister of the gospel AND  a responsible spouse and parent, while living in a fishbowl.
